Beginning of 2012 the NILS GESSINGER BAND will be on tour again! New titles of the overall & brandnew
CD "Pass-ion" will be presented as well as titles of previous CDs. This concept album is consisting of 15 new titles. They
all have been composed during motorcycle tours through the European alps and the Spanish Pyrenees.
Every title holds the name of a famous mountain or pass of that region.
Major parts of the album have been produced in New York City with superb artists like Grammy-
Award-winner Will Lee on bass,
Rocky Bryant (Frank McComb, Average White Band) and
John "Tropes" Tropea
(Deodato, Steve Gadd).
Apart from the NYC production two titles have been produced in L.A. with
Tim Weston (guit) and
David "Woody" Woodford
(sax) of legendary Fusion-superband "Dr. Strut".
In Hamburg / Germany I had the honor having guests like Peter Weniger (sax),
Herb Geller (sax),
Joe Gallardo (tb) und
Wolfgang Schlüter (vib)
being in the recording studio.
